This blog is dedicated to the discussion and presentation of historical ideas and thoughts about history.
This site is meant to facilitate discussion and argument over issues in the history of the early republic and related historiography. Rules: 1) No modern politics, these issues are not interesting in this context and any unnecessary provocations on this front will be punished by refusal to publish and 2) Cordiality please.
Even professional historians ask questions--good ones anyway. If anyone has a question, whether you're a misinformed victim of public schools or Howard Zinn or both, or the tenured professor at Yale, questions are encouraged here for intelligent discussion and enlightened debate.
